Tasting Notes

Neal Martrin 90/100
Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London.The 2006 Château Clerc-Milon has a very respectable bouquet: red fruit rather than black, laced with tobacco, woodland and dried herbs aromas, quite Saint Julien-like in style. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet, succulent opening: blackberry and raspberry fruit laced with salt and a dash of white pepper that leave the mouth tingling on the Merlot-driven finish. Tasted January 2016. May 2016, The Wine Advocate

Vineyard Information

Château Clerc Milon, classified a Fifth Growth in 1855, consists of 107 acres of vines, planted with the typical varieties of the region : 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot, 1% Carmenère. Adjoining two Pauillac First Growths, Lafite and Mouton, the estate had become somewhat neglected when it was bought by Baron Philippe in 1970. Vines were replanted by staff from Château Mouton Rothschild, parcels were consolidated and many technical improvements were made, including the building or a new vat room. These efforts are now bearing fruit and Château Clerc Milon has become one of the most sought-after Médoc wines, displaying a richness and depth comparable with the region's finest. ©ugcb
